Suggested hack: if your hubs are not loud enough, put a plastic cup (disposable) between your rear wheel and frame. You'll sound like a motorcycle even if you're pedaling

just as a side note, you don't have to pay for air, you can walk into the gas station or whatever building it is and ask for air. there is a law requiring them to give you air. They just don't tell you.

I just thought of something that you might be the only one who can answer... Why do we have CO2 canisters and not Helium? I mean... Think of riding a fat bike with tires filled with Helium. I wonder what that would feel like...
readysetnogo Pred dnevom
CO2 is much cheaper than helium... that's the main reason. The CO2 we use in things like CO2 canisters for biking comes as a by-product of other industrial processes, so the companies can just capture the CO2 and sell it, instead of just letting it vent to atmosphere.

hi seth, additional for the hacks, using of gloves (cotton) as a rag during bike wash, it helps you rub or access easily the corners or even the hub and spokes, a 360 deg rub in your bike, I learned it from BikecheckPH channel. hope to see it in your channel someday.

Fyi it's illegal to charge for air and water at gas stations, all you have to do is ask them to turn it on, but if you feel like paying they will gladly take the money.

I use car paint sealant coating on my frame, shock stanchions, stem and other painted parts to make cleaning the bike a lot easier. Pretty simple to apply and wipe off, makes cleaning the bike a lot easier as most dirt and grim comes off with just pressurized water. Just don't use it on drivetrain and brakes...obviously.

Check state laws regarding those gas station air pumps too! I know in California they have to provide air and water for free to anyone who asks so you can just walk inside, ask them to turn on the air, and they have to do so for free. Never paid for air in Cali

Some tips that may or may not have been mentioned. Cable ends. Instead of a crimp. A very small dap of super glue on the last 1/8 inch will hold the ends together for almost ever. It keeps the cable end neat and allows for pulling and reinserting the cable back through the housing later if needed. You can also add a drop of additional glue and heat shrink over it for a finished look. Seat posts. A non dropper seat post can be used to hold spare spokes, zip ties, some cash, Co2 etc. You can roll up and shove in a pair of nitrile gloves in to hold everything in there. Pieces of old inner tubes. Cut up pieces of old innertubes have a lot of uses. MTB tubes are pretty big but old road tubes can be used in a lot of places too. A piece on your seat post be prevent a seat bag strap from scratching, cut up a small piece and wrap it under some electrical tape on your bars to give your headlight and other mounted accessories a mounting pad with some extra grip and stability. Used around a multitool to prevent the tools from flapping around. Experiment with the size tubes you have laying around. It's easier to roll it in place sometimes than try to pull into place around something. A large cut up piece of tube and some electrical tape can make a decent frame protector and deadens debris noise.

For muscle cramps, bananas work the best. They contain lots of potassium which help to reduce cramping and retain water. They are also easy to store and you don’t have to worry about finding a bin for the peel, as it will naturally decompose!

You should look into waterproof spray for your next hack or even rubbing a cheap small candle onto clothes or equipment then heat for the same effect. I would recommend the latter then to just take waterproof spray out with you in case anything needs protecting. Worth mentioning, although I haven't tried it I wouldn't use it on frames as I imagine it isn't good for paintwork. Never mind after rewatching it was you who gave me the idea 😂 but still you can use the candle one, it's better than the spray

Use those skateboard grip tape on the brake levers. Also, not sure if you did this before, put information (name, cell, email) on a piece of paper and shove it inside of the handlebars. Or you could possibly put it in the crank set. You can add a tile gps locator too!

In addition to your tip to move bikes indoors on the rear wheel: if you need to get your bike down some stairs, take it by the front wheel and let it roll backwards down the stairs while you follow. This will save your back and it is super easy to steer the bike, even if the stairs are twisty. This was the way I did it when I was a mechanic and moved bikes to the attic of an Amsterdam store.

Use a rag or towel to help you get the right chain tension of your bmx or any other bicycles with single speed drivetrain. First loosen the nuts of your back wheel then put a rag between the wish bone and back tire(The rag will prevent the wheel from moving forward) then tighten the nuts

Pickle juice is also great for rehydration after or during a ride due to the high salinity which better helps your body absorb water you are drinking. It's better tasting than salt water and healthier than Gatorade. If you're weird like me and love pickles, the juice is enjoyable to drink.
